Duran Duran to perform at Mohegan Sun

In what is promising to be one of the most eagerly anticipated tours of 2016, multi-platinum superstars Duran Duran have announced that they will hit the road for an extensive North American arena and amphitheatre tour next year in support of their current album, Paper Gods.

The legendary band CHIC, led by guitarist Nile Rodgers, will appear as special guests on almost all of the dates with an additional support act to be announced. Rodgers served as a producer on Paper Gods and has enjoyed a long collaborative history with Duran Duran. Mohegan Sun Arena is primed for a Thursday, April 7 concert, beginning at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $83.90 and $63.90 and go on sale Saturday, Dec. 12 through Ticketmaster and Live Nation. Tickets are also on sale at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Sunday, Dec. 13, subject to availability.

The Paper Gods Tour will kick off on March 28, 2016 in Durham, North Carolina, and will be divided into two legs. The first runs through April with shows up and down the East Coast of America into Canada, including Washington D.C., Brooklyn, Atlanta, Austin and Montreal. The second leg returns the band to the road stateside in July and continues through early August with shows in Las Vegas, Irvine, San Diego, Toronto and more.

In its review of the band's recent Leeds show, The Guardian raved that "everything that is wonderful about Pop music seems to occupy the triumphant final half hour, as a sea of blondes, brunettes and husbands come together to bellow 'Planet Earth,' 'Girls on Film,' 'Rio,' and the rest. Every arm is raised skyward in a giant communal bonding, an audiovisual illustration of Le Bon's insistence that 'music is a healing force.'"

Paper Gods was released worldwide on Sept. 11 and bowed at No. 10 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart, earning Duran Duran its highest-charting album in 22 years.
